Overview
Hailed as "the most romantic film of the year!" (Bill Zwecker, FOX-TV) Academy Award® winner* Gwyneth Paltrow (Shakespeare in Love) and Aaron Eckhart (Erin Brockovich) star in this sexy, seductively intriguing mystery.

Maud Bailey and Roland Michell are two dedicated literary scholars with nothing in common—except their obsession with the two Victorian poets they have devoted their lives to studying. As they embark on a wildly romantic journey in search of the truth, the mysteries of the past engulf them, even as the passions of the present possess them.

*Best Actress, Shakespeare in Love, 1998
